The camera obscura aperture faces the street and captures the light reflected from the parked cars on Quincy street in the foreground and in the background a residential apartment building.
The image projected inside the camera obscura falls upon a beckoning cat mechanism and the wall behind it. This in turn is observed by a networked camera system that streams the view on the art center local network.
A second networked computer device accessed the image stream from the first and displays it via a web browser on a monitor mounted to the wall of the space. The monitor is set apart from the cube in the window to emphasize the separation between what is seen and when / where it is observed.
As with the prior iterations of "Schrödinger's cat isn't dead after all" my intention is to emphasize moments of simultaneity. I want to establish for the viewer a shift in perception whereby a passing car is observed at the moment it occurs, observed by the camera obscura and seen on screen.
